Rashid is getting drift and dip in the air as well as spin both ways! 

I can’t remember this from an English wrist spinner. 

As a former wrist spinner what do you think about Rashid, Grazor?

Another good googly from Rashid. 

Cummins edges him to slip, for a good catch. 

7-166 off 37. 

At this rate we aren’t going to get to 50 overs.

i'm glad England selected at least 1 guy that can bowl! Mind you its been unhappy times for wrist spinners this cup!

The key to watch is going accross the eyeline 3 times

1. you want it to flight enough to go above the eyeline
2. you want it to drift eye enough to go accross them (start on off and pitch on middle/leg)
3. you want to do more than straighten, if it goes towards off and you cross 3 eyelines you will pick up wickets

Even though he is a Pom, I love watching Rashid. 

An attacking wrist spinner. 

Hope he plays in the Ashes.

Not many leggies can do all this - well.
